Springtime?

Below is the final gopher painting. In this picture the little girl tells the gophers and moles to stay out of the golf coarse because her uncle who is the grounds keeper is getting ma..... you're not buying it are you. Actually this illustration goes with the animal meeting from a few posts back. I cropped it down.


The full image has a kind of neat transition to nothingness over to the right, but it looks a little odd without text.

And below are some springtime photos. (leave it to me to post an Autumn painting with springtime photos... but hopefully you didn't notice)


Ever wonder where the Bluebirds go during the winter? These photos aren't very good but I thought I'd share the bird in flight.

Hope you're having a nice week! I'm already looking forward to the weekend and it's only Tuesday... not good!

Getting back at it

Back at blogging I mean. I'll be posting some new pieces over the next few weeks. I intended to post the final of this piece upon completion but felt inclined to post the sketch now. Changes are inevitable but I thought it looked pretty cool.
